Sail Away With Me Layout Blue Fern Studios Seaside Cottage collection

 Hey Blue Fern Studios Friends I am sharing my latest layout using Blue Fern Studios Seaside Cottage collection,  isn't it Gorgeous?  

I started with Glory double sided paper from Seaside Cottage collection,  distressed the edges with Tim Holtz paper distresser and a paper punch.  Then I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Speckled Egg Distress Dioxide,  love that color!   

I created background texture using Bring your own sunshine stamp set and the new Netting stencil using texture paste,  embossing powder and glitter.
I also did diecutting and tearing with paper from Seaside Cottage papers.

For the chipboard piece I added acrylic paint in mint then added white embossing powder.
I also added lace from the Seaside Cottage collection and then started creating my design with layers of diecuts,  the chipboard,  flowers,  crocheted doilies and cheesecloth.

I also used diecuts from the Ephemera pack.

I can't wait to create more with this collection,  I love anything beachy themed and these colors are some of my favorites!
I hope I've inspired you to create something beautiful with this collection!

Birdie Darling Scrapbook Layout Bird Waltz

 Hey Crafty Friends I have a mixed media scrapbook layout with lots of layers!

I really love Blue Fern Studios Bird Waltz collection,  it has some of my favorite colors!

I started with cutting the edges with decorative scissors from Bird Waltz paper then I used Tim Holtz paper distressing tool to rough up the edges.   I added washy tape,  then I mixed acrylic paint,  texture paste,  glitter and spread it out thru a Finnabair stencil then sprinkled Blue Fern Studios embossing powder and heat set it.  The texture is so fun!

I also added cheesecloth,  crocheted doilies from Donna Little's Youtube shop,  diecuts,  flowers,  lace from Blue Fern Studios to create my design.
I fussy cut out that beautiful bird from Bird Waltz collection and also cutout Birdie Darling and distressed it.  

After I played around with my design I added seedbeads,  seedlings,  sequins and glitter to complete my layout.

I really love how this layout turned out,  my favorite colors,  lots of layers and texture!  
Stay tuned for a step by step video where I create a similar layout using the same techniques to create this layout!  
I hope I've inspired you today to create something beautiful!
